Pope Francis was brought up on ''donkey's milk''

The head of the Roman Catholic Church has a fondness for donkey milk, it has been revealed. 



London: The head of the Roman Catholic Church has a fondness for donkey milk, it has been revealed. 

Pope Francis, who said paradise is open to all God`s creatures, was gifted two of the donkeys named Thea and Noah by the Swiss firm Eurolactis, a company that produces donkey milk for babies who are allergic to other milks, the Daily Express reported.

Pierluigi Christophe Orunesu, of donkey farming cooperative Eurolactis Italia, claimed that the Pope, who was happy to receive the gifts, told him in front of media that his mother regularly gave him donkey`s milk where she could not provide enough breast milk or later on when he was a child.

The company also donated 21 gallons of donkey`s milk to the pediatric hospital in Rome.

The donkeys will now go to live at the pope`s farm at the papal summer palace of Castel Gandolfo 30 miles outside Rome.
